…As a Hoosier, I, too, like to explore the 824 miles of the Historic
National Road. My proseminar in history thesis in college
was based on the travels of Frederick Jackson Turner and
his theory of how the Westward expansion would change
America when there was no more country to explore. Travels
With Charley, On The Road, Listening To America and
Blue Highways were also pivotal books which encouraged
my love of traveling blue highways.

provided an in-depth insight into what makes America’s First
Interstate special. Albert Gallatin are you listening?
